American Heart Association Thanks University With Award
The American Heart Association (AHA) recently awarded the University of Maryland a platinum achievement award. The University and the University of Maryland Medical System raised $66,000 for the 2012 Greater Baltimore Heart and Stroke Walk in October, which helped AHA exceed its goal of $1.4 million.
President Jay A. Perman, MD, accepted the award on behalf of the University.
“We couldn’t have done it without you and your wonderful volunteers,” said Kimberly Moore, AHA Mid-Atlantic affiliate.
Moore also presented Perman with a published book of the photos from the day’s event with a picture of the University of Maryland team on the cover.
“Thank you, and thanks to everyone at the University who contributed to this wonderful cause,” said Perman.
The 2013 Greater Baltimore Heart Walk is scheduled for Oct. 19. AHA has a $1.7 million fundraising goal. University faculty, staff, and student senate representatives will spearhead the University’s involvement this year.
